Marca is completely full of ####. Never forget that.
You guys can guess at the others.
Oh #### those prigs at CONCACAF for suspending Klinsmann for the CONCACAF final.
Is it like the suspensions in the PL where the manager just sits in the stands and talks to his assistant on the phone?
He's gone. Now how do they spend the 100 million euros is the question at hand.
Matt, the Soldado deal doesn't really make sense to me if Bale isn't getting sold. That is a Van Persie level fee to pay. Maybe the two are not connected but a deal of that magnitude coming on the heels of Paulinho and Chadli seems a bit of a stretch.
Chelsea manager Mourinho says Bale is one of football’s hottest properties because he is a match-winner.
Mourinho said: “He is fantastic. He has this quality that has made the difference when the team was not able to make the difference.
“This is what makes the value of the player very high. This guy wins matches. He has an unbelievable shot, an unbelievable action, goals in the last minute, goals when it looks like they are going to draw and they win, goals when it looks like they are going to lose and they draw.
“So when I listen and read some numbers I think this kid will be worth every pound people are speaking about.
“I understand clearly that Andre Villas-Boas tries to keep him and says he’s not for sale.
“I understand the club ask an incredible amount of money for him because the kid is fantastic.”

Ken Bates says he was abruptly sacked from his tenure as the Leeds United president by the new owners, GFH, after he entered the club into a contract with the private aeroplane company 247 Jet that could be used to fly him to Leeds from his Monaco home.
The cost of this contract to which Bates committed the Championship club, which is under financial strain, is thought to be £500,000 over three years.
Describing his treatment as "despicable," Bates said he is considering suing.
I'll also be watching #9 for Panama, Gabriel Torres.
It didn't look good, though.
Daniel Levy, that master negotiator, is at it again. Amazingly amazed that Gareth Bale wants to force through a move to Real Madrid – but how could anyone want to leave Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur for little old Real Madrid?! – he has hit on a foolproof plan: he's going to put his fingers in his ears, close his eyes, pretend Bale doesn't exist and spend meetings he has with the Welshman's people shouting, "la la la la la la la I can't hear you but just so you know I'd probably take £100m". Ingenious. The silent treatment – which is maybe something Tottenham fans want to think about after their embarrassing carry-on on social media over the past 48 hours.
Being journalism experts, they're all appalled at the lack of quotes in reports about Bale's inexplicable desire to leave White Hart Lane, which hasn't been a problem in any of the stories about Roberto Soldado's imminent arrival from Valencia for £26m. Weird, that. Anyway, it's not all bad news for Spurs. They might be set to miss out on the Napoli defender Federico Fernández to West Brom but Emmanuel Adebayor could be on his way to Besiktas and they're also eyeing Paris Saint-Germain's Javier Pastore as a potential replacement for Bale, the misguided fool who wishes to swap the splendour of White Hart Lane for the Bernabéu, that rickety old excuse of a stadium.
Bayern Munich lost to Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, apparently because they were struggling to play more "horizonticalidad" instead of "verticalidad", as they say in the Spoofer's Guide to Football. Pep Guardiola, their new chief tinkerman, isn't happy and wants to get over that disappointment by buying David Luiz from Chelsea for £40m. Chelsea can have Luis Gustavo for £15m in return. But they can't have Wayne Rooney. Manchester United don't want to sell him to a rival, so that kind of rules out Arsenal as well. Meanwhile David Moyes is close to giving up on signing Cesc Fábregas from Barcelona and will instead turn his attention to rescuing Luka Modric from Madrid. See, Gareth! It's a trap! Stay and play with Scott E. Parker instead!
Outside of Donovan, I don't think anyone pushed themselves into a spot on the A team. I was most impressed by Diskerud, and I think Goodson had a strong tourney, especially the final yesterday.
